Mail-Order Mysteries:

Mail-Order Mysteries by Kirk Demarais: As you can see in the photos below, this is a beautifully designed book, devoted to the trinkets that used to be regularly advertised on comic books. Chip Kidd puts it well:

If childhood disappointments could ever be considered an art form, then Mail-Order Mysteries is a masterpiece. Really. The metaphors for life itself are inescapable, the disillusion heartbreakingly laid bare, the tackiness a drug you just can't quit.
Photos of 150 items and their accompanying ads, and the cover glows in the dark, too. $13 at Amazon.
